p.3 Pleasure Trip To The Saguenay - steamer Alliance, 835 Tons, and 250 horse power, Capt. Rose, R.N., Commander, will leave Quebec on 2nd July for pleasure trip to Saguenay - details.

"The Frontenac, on her trip up on Monday night, accidentally caught fire, which for a time threatened to destroy the boat; it was, however, got under by the greatest exertion, without any serious damage." [Cobourg Star of Wednesday]

The Editor of the Cobourg Star has been imposed upon. Nothing having the slightest tendency to endanger the Frontenac, occurred during the passage. The rumor must have originated in a desire to injure the character of the boat, the owners of which have experienced many petty annoyances since running her on the Lake, that are highly discreditable to the parties who instigate them.
